    A renegade tribble as the central villain is about as dark and edgy as it gets. I think both Abrams and his detractors simply lack vision in this area.

    :lol:

    It also explains his superpowers - if tribbles develop to live in the Wars verse, then clearly they have a connection to the Force, and thus Human Tribbles should have no problem developing Jedi powers. Then we'll get to see the Klingon ragtag fleet led by an aging Bird of Prey fleeing the Death Furball in movie three!

    Will we get to see a scene showing Bones checking the tribble midichlorian count?
    My guess is they're off the chart.

    Are midichlorians canon in Star Trek?

    Thanks to the loyal sacrifice of many Bothan agents, we now have the first pick of the real villain of STID.

    By the way, are the children of a borg-tribble borg-tribbles or normal tribbles?
    If they're just tribbles then the borg might have a problem to assimilate them fast enough and get their own tribble problem.

    Rumour has it we'll get to see a very prolific cameo appearance.

    I think a tribble could only wear one while taking a siesta, otherwise it would probably interfere with their eating and mating and whatever else they do.

    :lol: Just kidding, we all know they don't do anything else.

    If Abrams can include the Borg Tribbles while preserving canon, we're onto a winner.

    This thread was absolutely the first time I've heard of the Borg Tribbles.

    This is a nightmare.

    Give them time. I'm sure if not in this upcoming movie, they'll use them in some later installment.

    This is just SO ugly...

    If they aren't a major element of this film, I suggest they add a post-credits scene in which Uhura shows Spock the cute, furry fuzzball she just bought at a starbase. Spock looks at it, pauses, looks up at the camera, and calmly announces: "Red alert." End scene.

    Awesome but they aren't Borg. Is this the poster for a Tribble Prequel Movie?
